    When I last posted the photos it was younger and some were on the fence about the gender. I am leaning toward roo and am happy if it is. He is a 9 week old Easter Egger and came in my Pullet Assortment. What do y'all think?[​IMG]

    I think that a black and white bird with red on the wings is almost always male. Hopefully one of the EE experts will chime in here, but I'm voting roo. Dig down in the feathers near the base of his tail to see if he's sprouting saddles yet. And post update photos as he develops - I bet he's gonna be gorgeous!
